The Classic Santa Hats knitting pattern is an adorable Christmas knit baby hat with cute row of red and white santa hats around the brim, complete with white pom poms on top, knit one for your baby or toddler this holiday season!
How cute are these little red hats on my new Classic Santa Hats knitting pattern? I struggled with what to call this cute Christmas knitting pattern. Mostly because Santa hat hat sounded super weird. So did Santa hat baby hat. And I also have a baby Santa hat, an adult Santa hat and a Santa bonnet.
So I went with Classic Santa hats knitting pattern because they definitely are classic and adorable. This is such a fun one to knit, especially at the end when you get to add the little white pom poms on top of each hat. Those are done as French knots and they’re actually very easy, I promise!
I like the idea of using an embroidery stitch like the French knot because it seems secure and safe. No choking hazards. And no special supplies needed, just a yarn needle and the yarn you’re already using. And who doesn’t like to learn a simple new skill?
If you’ve never made a french knot with yarn before, this is a nice tutorial! The only difference is that I wrapped my yarn 4 times instead of 3 for a slightly larger knot.
This cute Christmas pattern is knit in the round and has only a few rows of stranded or fair isle colorwork so it’s a great pattern to practice with.
If you knit a Classic Santa hats baby hat, don’t forget to share it with me, I love to see what you knit!
